The hottest show on Netflix is nearly here and judging by the Stranger Things Season 2 trailer, fans won't be disappointed.

According to a series description, a "bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived" in the first season.

Netflix has revealed new details about the second season of Stranger Things, including a poster.

The show's producers are not saying much more, but are teasing to expect not just new human characters this season. Besides the brief clip, fans were given a synopsis of what is to come. Stranger Things features a retro look and soundtrack and harkens back to the golden days of adventure fantasies by the likes of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas.

Stranger Things took to Twitter to share an ominous new teaser, and hinted in the caption that the Hawkins citizens' troubles are far from over. Some of you may be wondering why Netflix is releasing the second season of the series on Friday, Oct. 27, and not on Halloween.

However, the wait is now over and the start date for the season has been revealed as October, 27, 20017.

New characters will also be introduced: Sean Astin (The Goonies) plays Bob, who's apparently dating Joyce.

Netflix is returning to Hawkins, Indiana, a little sooner than we expected!

Are you as excited as we are for season two of Stranger Things? The online streaming service has confirmed the Stranger Things 2 release date today. Plus, David Harbour will be back as Chief Hopper and Winona Ryder as Will's mother Joyce. When Will coughed up that slug last season, the lights flickered for a moment, and we caught another small glimpse of the Upside Down. "Because you think you want that, but you wouldn't really want that". After season one, there's no doubt fans are hoping for answers to those burning questions!
